AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Review by Donald
I bought this Quad about 2 weeks ago, and other than a couple of bugs I had to work out with the awesome customer service people, it fly's like a dream. Great item for the price. Keep up the good work HP. I will be buying more items in the future. I give it 5 stars all the way. A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ (Posted on 10/29/14)
1st quadcopter Review by herb
This is my first quad as well as my first quad kit. I enjoyed the assembly. A few changes to get the battery in as the circuit board has to be right on the arms. I am using a 3c 3200 mah lipo battery.

I am using a Futaba TX and RX and the only problem I had was with the orientation of the dip switches. I sent an e-mail and quickly had a response that resolved my concerns.

The first flight went into a rapid oscillation and required reducing the gain. Two more flights and reducing the gain each time and I had a very stable hover.

After a bad landing (skidding backwards) and a broken prop I put the training gear from my heli on to allow some slip on the grass field. The quad is very powerful and lifts off into a stable hover easily.

I must point out the quad must be level before battery hookup or it will roll when throttle is applied!

Very happy, herb

thanks to Tom for helping me avoid 1 mistake Review by Bobby
I purchased this quad last week and flew it today - It flew great and is very stable as I set it up - the manual said to set the throws on the radio All rev. I found the throttle to be reversed - Called tom and he advised me to remove props / start the motors tip the quad right / left forward etc. and make sure the proper motors increased in speed - in doing so i found I needed to set the throws rev/normal /normal / rev I use a Hitec aurora 9 radio - the quad is a winner
By the way HP batteries are the best no swelling /long life etc.

thanks for Orange store for help in setting this up Review by Tracy
This is my 1st quad kit, and flew it for 1st time sunday. Great product, but I have to say, building and learning how to set it up was the best part. Thank you to your staff for helping me throughout the process. (Posted on 6/2/14)
